New Paradigm are...

New Paradigm are straddling that line between metal and prog rock that seems to becoming more and more blurrred. The musicianship is, simply, amazing. The instruments are played with more than mere proficiency, but also passion and astounding technique. The singing, though, is an issue. On Circles and The Blood-Born, the growl is just so oiut of place with the musicianship behind it. However, on Veil, it all comes together perfectly. More like this and they could well hit the heights of Australian music.
